Lucid Absinthe Supérieure is the first genuine absinthe made with real Grande Wormwood to be legally available in the United States after a 95-year ban.
Lucid Absinthe is made in strict accordance to traditional European methods in the historic Combier Distillery of the Loire Valley of France. Designed by Gustave Eiffel in the 1850’s, the distillery and copper alembic pot stills have been producing absinthe for over 100 years.
Made with whole European herbs, Lucid does not contain any added flavors or dyes. Absinthe is a versatile spirit. The most traditional consumption method is “louching,” in which cold water and a sugar cube are dissolved into the absinthe, turning it a cloudy white color. Absinthe can also be consumed in a variety of classic and modern cocktails.
Lucid is characterized by upfront flavors of anise and fennel, followed by mild mid-palate earthy textures attributable to the absinthe (Artemisia absinthium). The herbs round out the flavor with additional spice and grassy notes, which linger in a moderately long finish.
